Dead "Bombers" tell No Tales. Neither do "Dead" Men! Welcome to AmeriKa!
The new freedom has arrived! Only it is not free, nor is it new.World history is already littered with this type of society; a society where the peasants hide from the raiders who attack the villages. History is populated with the tales of government marauders who oppress the commoners.
This is why the foundation of old America was based on a Constitution that supported rights for freedom which included the right to a trial and the presumption of innocence until PROVEN GUILTY!
The presumption of innocence is a foundational cornerstone of a free society.
But over the past few days, we have all become witnesses to the new courtroom. A tribunal where justice is exercised with the bullets of SWAT teams and Homeland Security agents.
In the old days, a description of a suspect qualified their guilt or innocence with the word, "alleged!" But now with the instantaneous dynamic of the media, people are being indoctrinated to desire a quick remedy which includes blood and a dead body.
Lest we forget, we just saw this happen in California with the ex-officer, Christopher Dorner, who was accused of having a manifesto....He was executed!

Something to think about. I'm pretty sure that Nathan's thoughts are similar to what many of you already think.
The actions of the law enforcement community after the Boston bombing is a perfect example of the militarization of our police forces today. Don't think it's just in the big cities and that it "can't happen here" in your small corner of Amerika. It is everywhere. No one even had to go out and recruit these people. They all volunteered once they saw a SWAT Team on TV all those years ago.
I have a serious problem with the "end justifies the means" mentality that these LEOs exhibited throughout this entire operation.
I also think that there is more to the story.
I will admit that I am surprised that Suspect #2 was taken alive.
Ahhhh well. No speculation today from my little corner of the world. :)
